Do not take it personally. What? Anything.
There is no place for actions calculated to be either heroic or sacrificial. If action is required, and you have the capability, and no one else is taking the necessary action, do it.
It is fine to feel good about your actions, but beware. Pride reduces value.
It is not fine to harbor guilt for failure to act, or for faulty action. Learn from it. Retained guilt is a parasite on the soul. Quickly, get it’s message, then dismiss it.
